It’s been almost 7 months since Google announced that you can make Google Voice calls from within your Gmail account.
It’s been almost 7 months of waiting and wondering just when exactly Google plans to add this feature for us Google Apps for Business users. You know, the ones that actually pay to use Google’s services?
You’d think that Google would have figured this out by now. But, no. Google Apps, despite being one of Google’s few premium subscription products, seems to be the red-headed step-child of new product features. We just don’t get these features added when Gmail does.
Adding salt to the wounds, we learn that Gmail users will now be able to click any telephone number in an email and call that number using Google Voice.
Well, isn’t that special!
Hey Google! When
do us does this* Google Apps users get these shiny new features?
*It appears that I am among a small group of users that use Google Apps email to access to my Google Voice account, although my Google Voice account is not actually integrated with my Google Apps account.
